  1. I agree with this completely, and was thinking it for the last couple of seasons. I loved Eden playing for us, and I think he's easily the most talented player ever to pull on the blue, but in recent years we weren't as much a team as just a vessel for Hazard. If we tried to play fast attacking football it was great right up until it reached Eden who 4 times in 5 would slow down to walking pace and draw in the defender, while their team would have plenty of time to get back. It also felt like most of the time our attacks followed a fair narrow range of options, mostly tied around Eden and Willian short passing or trying to run their man. Looking at the difference this year when we have some lightning fast attacks and real variation in attack, and its like night and day. We've lost our best player but my god we're so much more versatile and fun to watch now.
  2. That Zouma interception yesterday was sex on a stick. 🤩
  3. Tammy for me based purely on expectation. I knew Jorginho and Kova were class players so them coming on wasn’t a shock, but really didn’t expect Tammy to do anything like what he’s done. Fair play to the lad.
  4. Phone went off at the wrong time? That's a grand.. 🤣
  5. Surely you'd want a youngster competing on each side, so when the older players move on (maybe next season) the kids are already in place? Also then you can bring in the older heads for games when you need experience on a particular wing.
  6. Yeah, thought he was going to get sent off yesterday, but he balanced it beautifully. Nice change after watching Alonso lose his sh*t regularly in the past.
  7. I remember Pat Nevin absolutely raving about Bats at the time we bought him, saying he was one of the best young strikers in the world. Hopefully he can buckle down and start living up to that.
  8. Embarrassing at the back at times, but damn are we exciting going forward or what? Still lots of naivety out there which you’d expect from such a young team, but so much fun to watch. I was one of the camp who really wanted Sarri to stay, but couldn’t be happier with life under Frank so far.
  9. That was always Cahill's big flaw to be honest.
  10. I think that's a good thing. It doesn't do these young players any good at all being lauded as the 'next big thing!' and having both tons of pressure put on them, and their egos stroked too early. Let's keep the hype down, and leave them wanting to work hard to prove a point.
  11. If it’s true that him and Willian are both super bothered about the number 10 shirt then they both need to grow up. At least with Callum he’s still a kid, Willian has no excuse.
  12. I always had a soft spot for Kenedy. Really exciting player on his day. Hopefully he can kick on this season and show us what he’s capable of.
  13. Apparently had blue highlights on his new white/gold boots as a tribute to Chels according to Nike. ?
  14. Same here. Also it puts him in the media spotlight more, which seems to have a slight effect on how loanees are perceived by the club.
  15. 12m according to this https://www.sportskeeda.com/football/robert-lewandowski-net-worth
  16. It's nice to see Frank back, but I can't say I ever felt like I lost the club in the first place.
  17. If you don't mind me asking, has there been a single time in your Chelsea supporting time where you've actually.. enjoyed yourself?
  18. Ok so this year we had to sit through half the fans bitching and whining all year about how much they hated Sarri, and how 3rd and a EUFA cup wasn't good enough etc etc. Now it seems like the coming season we'll have Frank back, a transfer ban and a squad full of kids. Now I'm not sure I can handle another 9 months of misery and whining, so how about we all agree to treat this season as just a good laugh, and not give a sh*t about things like league position and cups and all that? Let's pretend we're back in the 80's when we never expected anything, and a win was a surprise pleasure! Also we will probably get the added bonus os watching all the plastics f**k off to Liverpool and City! It's a win all around!
  19. We should do whatever is necessary to get Sarri to stay. He deserves another season, and we deserve to see the project develop. Sick of endless change.
  20. The punching was weird, but hopefully the coaches will drill that out of him.
  21. Yeah I think so, and I don’t mean that to disparage him in any way at all. We couldn’t bring in other players of the same level to achieve the same result, so now perhaps having the team more balanced might bring out the best in the others.
